As part of its commitment to developing South Africa, Total South Africa was one of the first oil companies to introduce service stations in previously disadvantaged areas. Considered to be a pioneer in local employment, Total South Africa has been recognised for a substantial number of firsts when it comes to progressive transformation. Notably, it was the first multinational oil company in South Africa to appoint a female executive. During the 1960s, it was also the first oil company to introduce its brand into what were then known as predominantly black townships, also taking the initiative to appoint black service station owners.
